ProCollage for iPhone review: combine your photos into beautiful collages

ProCollage for iPhone is a photography app that gives you the ability to create beautiful collages featuring your photos. I know, there's a million collage apps in the Apps Store, but ProCollage offers some unique features like a FreeStyle mode and panoramic strips of images.

Something so simple as adding photos to a collage is one of my favorite features of ProCollage. Instead of choosing a photo for each spot in the collage, you simply choose all the photos you want to use at once and ProCollage adds them all for you. If you want to swap their locations, you just drag the photos around to the desired spots. And if you want to change just one photo, you can do that too.

Like most collage-making apps, ProCollage has different templates to choose from for up to nine photos in a single collage. These templates are available in 1:1, 2:3, 3:4, 3:2, and 4:3 ratios and you can change the color/pattern of the background and the roundness of the corners. You can also slide the dividers around to customize the collage to be exactly how you want.

In addition to traditional storyboard collages, you can also create FreeStyle and panoramic collages with ProCollage. For the FreeStyle collages, there are many different backgrounds to choose from as well as some templates. You can also arrange and size the photos exactly how you want and disregard the templates.

The panoramic collages are simply vertical and horizontal photo strips.

ProCollage allows you to share your creations to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and any other app that supports photos. There are three exporting sizes available, the largest being 1800x1800 or 900px on shortest side of panoramic collages.

The good

  • Classic collage options with ability to customize border, corners, and background
  • FreeStyle collage mode that lets your freely position your photos from 15 different themes
  • Stitch photos into a vertical or horizontal panorama
  • Supports up to none photos in a single collage
  • Up to 1800x1800 export
  • Supports 1:1, 2:3, 3:4, 3:2, and 4:3 ratios
  • Add/replace photos in collage quickly and easily
  • Share to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other apps

The bad

  • Can't apply any adjustments or edits to individual photos

The bottom line

ProCollage is a great collage app for iPhone. If you're looking for a simple app to quickly create collages, definitely give ProCollage a try.

  • Looks like a good one. Might give it a try... Thanks!
  • Not sure if this is necessary. But I'm sure someone will enjoy! Great review!
  • My wife loves doing this stuff to photos. Going to tell her to buy it and if it's cool maybe I'll buy it too lol.
  • Why don't you and your wife share an account for buying apps?!!!
  • how do you do that?
  • You set up an AppleID and use that for iTunes & AppStore purchases only... set that up on your iDevices in the Settings for iTunes & AppStore... and then have individual accounts for iCloud email, sync, back-up, etc. And the bonus is you can use the shared AppleID with iCloud to share a calendar & notes if you want to.
  • Thank you
  • I wouldn't use a shared AppleID for Calendar. You can go to iCloud.com and share specific calendars and reminders lists. It's less messy that way. My husband and I share a "Family" calendar and a Grocery list in Reminders.
  • Thanks Leanna
  • Can you have two accounts on one phone? I know there are apps DL that she would not want on her phone and vis-a-verse.
  • While you are in itunes you can set it to not automatically download new apps and then she can download what she wants and you can download what you want without all the apps being the same on both phones.
  • Yep. This.
  • While I'm not fond of collages, this seem like a great app to create them. Very user-friendly.
  • Might give this a try
  • Is there any other app like this one? Or this is the best one on the app store?
  • The ProCollage app's apparent versatility and simplicity of use is impressively better than many of the desktop collage apps I've tried recently. And the convenience of mobility is a plus. Thanks for the excellent review, Leanna.
